Insoles For Poor Circulation

Poor Circulation

The course of the blood from the heart through the arteries, capillaries, and veins back again to the heart.
Proper blood circulation is crucial to your existence. Blood circulates throughout your body, tissue and organs to provide them with nutrients, carry your body’s waste, protect you from germs that cause disease, keep you cool and warm, and heal wounds. Poor blood circulation can cause many problems.

Poor Circulation May Cause

Many health conditions disrupt the proper flow of blood to organs, tissue, feet and hands, causing havoc with a person’s health and well being. When the blood flow to the feet is restricted, the following symptoms and foot conditions usually emerge:

  • Tired Feet – There are many conditions that can make a person have tired feet. Some of these conditions may be damaged nerves, fibromyalgia, bone pain or restless leg syndrome.
  • Burning Feet – Can be caused by gout, diabetes and neuroma (a trapped nerve).
  • Cold Feet – Can be caused by the slowdown of blood from the heart to the feet. This usually happens at night when sleeping and immobile.
  • Leg Cramps – Painful, involuntary contraction of a single muscle or a muscle group caused by abnormal electrical activity of the central nervous system.
  • Inflammation of Feet and Ankles – The build-up of excess fluids or inflammation of adjoining tissues.
  • Uric Acid Crystals Caused by Gout – Uric acid crystals accumulate in the joints; usually, the large joint of the big toe. Uric acid crystals form and deposit in joints and other tissue, when the uric acid is not broken down and does not dissolve into the urine.
  • Neuropathy Suffered by Diabetics – Numbness and sometimes pain in hands, feet and legs caused by damaged nerves. Since the nerves to the feet are the longest in the body, they are most often affected by neuropathy. Foot ulcers can develop overtime. If not treated properly, they can become infected resulting in amputation.
  • Varicose veins – Twisted, enlarged veins near the surface of the skin. They most commonly develop in the legs and ankles. Varicose veins develop when you have faulty valves in your veins and weakened vein walls. Normally, the one-way valves in these veins keep the blood flowing efficiently against gravity up toward the heart. When these valves do not function properly, blood pools, pressure builds up, and the veins become weakened, enlarged, and twisted. This is called venous insufficiency.
Our Insoloes improve circulation as they pump up and down along the arches of your feet. This all-day massaging action improves blood flow and circulation in the feet and lower body. This action creates and releases pressure on your feet as you walk and flushes the blood pools that have accumulated on your feet and allows new, oxygen-rich blood to flow in.
